Planning General Aviation travel to Central Alabama for business or leisure?

You really owe it to yourself to consider using Bessemer Municipal Airport for your next General Aviation trip to Central Alabama. 

By its very nature, General Aviation offers the promise of significant time savings and enhanced convenience. Use EKY to avoid BHM congestion, Highway 280 traffic, and Malfunction Junction to fully realize the benefits of flying General Aviation. 

Avfuel certified fuel staff provides safe and efficient Jet A and 100LL fueling services while friendly concierge staff assists passengers and crew with hotel reservations, catering, Enterprise rental cars, and other ground transportation. 

EKY has transient hangar space for aircraft as large as the Hawker 850. Ramp and aircraft tie-down space is plentiful. Long-term hangars are available as well as hangar development opportunities

EKY's close proximity to the Mercedes-Benz "auto corridor" provides many businesses with timely GA support. Our nearness to the Jefferson Metropolitan Parks at McCalla and Lakeshore and the Birmingham Regional Intermodal Facility facilitates timely corporate and freight options. 

EKY is also an ideal GA airport for travelers visiting Ross Bridge Golf Resort & Spa featuring two Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail courses as well as the Regions Traditional at Shoal Creek. NASCAR and Barber race fans frequent EKY while many Porsche Driving School participants begin their experience with a flight to EKY.

Fans attending the SEC Baseball Tournament appreciate the short drive to the Hoover Met while musicians and fans enjoy quick access to Oak Mountain Amphitheater. Football fans avoid the rush at Tuscaloosa Regional Airport and start the weekend off with a flight to EKY. Take in unique attractions such as the Mercedes-Benz Museum or the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum and enjoy Birmingham's many fine dining options. 

While you are at EKY,  be sure to stop by The Hangar Bar & Grill conveniently located next door to our main terminal. The Hangar Bar & Grill offers lunch and dinner service and is equipped with a full bar. Grab a bite and a drink then relax on the patio, just a few yards from the runway, and enjoy the best sunset in Birmingham.
